Our guide Matt, same on two tours at the same days, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We took the Apartheid to Freedom and the Bo-Kaap tours and enjoyed both a lot. Highly recommend for everyone new to this town/area.

Tours are about 2 to 2 1/2 hours long. You can just turn up on the day and put your name down 30 minutes or so beforehand.
